10.31.11 Olympic Training Center | Lake Placid Sliding Complex
This must be what love feels like! I wish that I could poignantly describe the experience of my first slide on the ice, but alas. What I can tell you is that –if Day 1 is any indication– the thrill of racing head first is one that doesn’t compare to anything in my mental record.
So what was Day 1 like?
Well, it began as most others do. I awoke at 6:30am, which is truly a little later than usual, and then:
7:30-8:30 am Cardio + Stretch
9:30 Team Meeting
12:00-1:00 Lift + Abs
1:30-2:30 Nap. My 2nd favorite activity after feasting. I mean, both I like to nap after I feast and I also like napping second best to feasting. Just thought to offer some clarification there.
3:00-4:00 Track Walk and Sled Fittings
8:00-10:00 Chill in the OTC Common Areas w/ other athletes
10:30-11:00pm Stretch + Foam Roll + Study Track Map
Until tomorrow, I was never in the box! –Andia
